Hot temperatures and your swimming pool here in Las Vegas

Posted by Dane Wicker on Monday, July 3, 2017,
So summer is here! Hard to believe, but it's true. It seems like seasons go by in about a month. But with time flying as it does, sometimes the green of algae sneaks up on us. But we can help!

So with that in mind, it is time to get going on your pool! So weather or not you need s...

Posted by Derrick Ward on Friday, February 26, 2016, In : Pool Maintenance 
So believe it or not, winter is coming to an end and summer is rapidly approaching. As a matter of fact, it may be here sooner than later since we are reaching near highs for day time temperatures. This weekend temperatures will near 80 degrees. So when this happens this early while the sun is still positioned in the South still, it makes a really good incubator for algae. What we can do to help out is to a complete assessment of your water status. We will test total hardness and total dissol...

Pool Service in Las Vegas during the off season

Posted by Dane Wicker on Saturday, December 5, 2015, In : Pool Maintenance 
Many wonder if they need swimming pool service in Las Vegas in the off season. As it cools, pool chemical consumption does go down, but what doesn't go away, is the need to keep the pool clean. With the winter season, comes Las Vegas wind and when this is combined with all of our trees dropping leaves like crazy it makes for a difficult situation. The pool fills up with leaves and debris as fast as we can get it out. This debris needs to be removed from the pool because first, it will stain t...

Summer is Winding Down What do I do with my Swimming Pool?

Posted by Dane Wicker on Wednesday, September 9, 2015,
The biggest misconception in owning a swimming pool in Las Vegas is the idea that once summer is over, the maintenance of the pool can be paused or even completely stopped. This is simply not true! Once the weather changes and our daytime highs aren't in the 100's any more, our work isn't over. Leaves, dirt and debris continue to fall into the pool and if left, will stain the plaster. Also, our filter pumps continue to work and collect dirt and small debris and will also need to continue nee...

How do I best service my swimming pool here in the Las Vegas summer heat?

Posted by Dane Wicker on Wednesday, September 9, 2015,

As most of us who have been in Las Vegas for any sort of time know that summer months can be brutal!  And those  of us fortunate enough to have a swimming pool can really lessen the "pain" the summer heat can cause on our bodies and our emotions!  Before having a pool, I often contemplated leaving Las Vegas every summer just because the heat was so draining on my whole life (mind, body and spirit!).  But now having a home with a swimming pool has been great!  The kids are having the time of t...

Cleaning Swimming Pool Filters to minimize problems

Posted by Dane Wicker on Wednesday, June 10, 2015, In : Pool Maintenance 
The reason our swimming pools stay crystal clear is due to a number of things.  First of all, correct water chemistry will ensure our water stays clear and algae free.  But another important factor in keeping our equipment running at it's highest efficiency is making sure to periodically clean the filter cartridges.  You see, every little particle of dirt, debris and even our skin particles that flake off while we swim are all captured by the pool filter.  It does an amazing job at catching p...

What to do with my pool in the winter?

Posted by Dane Wade on Sunday, January 4, 2015, In : Pool Water Circulation 
Just wanted to touch on a couple of concerns pool owners in Las Vegas have every winter.  The most commonly asked question I get is:  "How long do I run my pool in the winter?"  I always respond by telling them the most important thing is not how long to run the pool, but when to run the pool.  You see, even though we live in a desert that during summer months is hotter than Haiti, during the winter it does get cold here and often times freezes!  So when you need to run your pool in the Las V...

How Long Do I Run My Pool Pump?

Posted by Dane Wicker on Sunday, May 6, 2012, In : Pool Water Circulation 
With the hotter summer months getting closer and closer, many have a question as to how long to run their filter pump every day.  I recommend setting your pool time clock to run at least 8 hours a day once temperatures reach 90 degrees through the end of September.  The time to run the filter pump is typically 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. or maybe 9 9 a.m. - 7 p.m.  That way, the pool is circulating through the hottest hours of the day and will have uniform chlorine levels throughout the pool, because wh...

How to clean a pool...Las Vegas

Posted by Dane Wicker on Friday, May 4, 2012, In : Pool Maintenance 
The first thing we do when we provide weekly pool service in Las Vegas is test the water.  This test will show us total chlorine and free chlorine levels.  It also shows us total alkalinity levels as well as pH of the pool water.  From there, we add the appropriate chemicals which include, depending on the condition of the pool, chlorine shock, chlorine tablets, acid to bring pH down (in a lot of cases) and sometimes algaecide if there are any algae spots located within the pool.  From there,...

This week cleaning pools in Las Vegas...

Posted by Derrick Ward on Sunday, April 29, 2012, In : Acid Wash 
So with summer right around the corner, we are very busy helping people get their pools clean and clear!  This week I had several acid washes and bead blasts.   Typically we start by dropping a pump the day prior to a pool clean-up to empty the pool.  Then, the following day we come and sandblast the pool tile with glass bead.  This makes the tile look amazingly clean, bright and new again.  Once we complete this process, there is a lot of glass bead in and around the pool.  We clean-up the b...
